We require our suppliers to meet the regulations in “Supplier Social Responsibility Code of Conducts”. For example, child labor is not to be used in any stage of manufacturing referring to any person under the age of 15. Workers under the age of 18 (young adult workers) shall not perform work that is likely to jeopardize their health or safety, including night shifts. Supplier shall ensure proper worker management, environmental protection and waste management in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. In addition, bribes, commissions, kickbacks or other means of improper advantage are not to be promised, offered or given to our employees. Fair business, competition and advertising ethics are to be upheld in the highest standard.
We require our suppliers to meet the regulations prescribed in “Integrity Transaction Agreement”. The transaction procedures and products shall comply with the laws and regulations set forth by the government. The suppliers shall not give improper benefits to the personnel from both sides of the companies or the entrusted manufacturers.
We established the “Supplier Selection Methods” as the supplier selection guidelines. A supplier not only needs to be registered and regulated by the government but also it needs to meet our qualifications before it can be our partnered supplier.
